The site is extremely quiet and peaceful and the area has stunning views. The lodge was cosy and clean and had everything you could need for a short break.... More

If you want a quiet place to stay Grattons Cedar Lodges are perfect. The lodges are of a good standard. Our lodge although basic was clean and well maintained. Due to the quiet location on a hillside coming back from the excellent Globe pub in Berrynarbour village could be a bit of a hike up a steep hill for some,... More

We look forward to having you back too! Thanks so much for your kind feedback. I would maybe just caveat the "short walk to town/beach" for other readers. The nearest town is Ilfracombe which is 3 miles away, a harbour town that gets better and better each year as Damien Hirst and others plough money into the area. The nearest... More

Just returned from a weekend break from here. I booked via Hoseasons. I contacted Hoseasons to inform them we would be arriving late. They were useless. The woman couldn't find the park I had booked let alone give me the phone number. I found the park details myself and emailed them. Within minutes I had a response from Dave and... More
